Welcome to Rosettacode

Welcome, it will be a pleasure to have another author in F#. As your first contribution you have selected to overwrite one of my contributions. A bold decision. Functional programming has well known patterns 'fold' for sequence reduction and 'unfold' for sequence generation. Why do you think that a more verbose, slower, and less idiotmatic procedure is an improvement on unfold for realizing the Van Eck sequence? In general it is better to have two implementations in one language than to overwrite one that is arguably more idiotmatic with another. I look forward to seeing your contibutions in F# to tasks as yet unsolved in F#.--Nigel Galloway (talk) 13:11, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
